Thao and Mirah album, tour, movie
It’s a busy time for musicians Thao and Mirah. The two finally got their chance to record an album together – their self-titled album was just released on Kill Rock Stars (head over to RCRD LBL to download “Folks”) and they’ve also released a “New, Improved” live stuiod session which include versions of three songs from their album and a special take on Pat Benatar’s “Love is a Battlefield.” All four songs are available for free download at TheBayBridged.com, where three session videos are also available for viewing.
They’re also taking their show on the road, playing in the Northwest on May 6 at WWU up in Bellingham, May 7 at the Croc in Seattle, May 8 at the Wonder Ballroom in Portland, and May 9 at Northern in Oly before heading eastward for a series of shows across the US and in Canada that culminate in a June 23 show at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco.
As if that’s not enough, Thao and Mirah contributed music to the soundtrack of American Teacher, a documentary that chronicle four teachers in four different settings across the country, taking an unflinching look at answers to the question so many teachers face: Can I afford to continue to teach? American Teacher screens in May in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Washington, DC, with a Chicago screening in June, for more info about the film and the work of The Teacher Salary Project, check out their website.
